Iowa Wedding Photographer Cluney Photo traveled to Montana for this beautiful destination elopement. Seated right on the edge of Glacier National Park, Green Valley Ranch is an incredible place. Jacklyn & Cole came from Cincinnati to Glacier for their intimate elopement. Surrounded by only their closest friends and family, as well as their daughter, this wedding was as perfect as you’d imagine. With help from Field Wedding Studio and A Movable Feast catering in Missoula, the couple was able to enjoy all the beauty of Montana and their family without the stressful aspects of a larger wedding. We made a quick trek to Glacier National Park the day after their elopement for some additional wedding photos. Congratulations Jacklyn & Cole!

Soon to be featured in Rocky Mountain Bride‘s Idaho Wedding Issue, Iowa Wedding Photographer Cluney Photo traveled to Swan Valley, Idaho for Courtney + JM’s beautiful backyard wedding on the groom’s property. Near Jackson Hole, Swan Valley’s natural beauty was an emphasis for this couple and their day. The couple, who reside in LA, had friends and family attending from all over the west coast. Their love was the real focus of the day though, and these two could not have been more in love. Surrounded by the love of their family and friends, this was one of my most memorable weddings of 2019.
Being an Iowa Wedding Photographer takes me all over the country! More of my recent work can be found on the blog and portfolio! June 3, 2019
Kelsey & Steven came from San Francisco for their beautiful Montana Wedding in Whitefish. Being a traveling Des Moines Wedding Photographer, I get to see a lot of beautiful venues, and The Barns at Big Mountain was no exception. They held the ceremony in a wooded grove on the property. The reception, styled perfectly by Events by Autumn, took place in one of the barns on the property. Surrounded by friends and family at the base of Glacier National Park, this wedding was a beautiful event to witness. Congratulations to the amazing couple!

As Des Moines Family Photographers, we love when our work takes us on the road. The James family lives in American Fork, Utah. They’re some of my favorite folks on the planet. Joshua is an incredible musician and songwriter (check his tunes here). Photographed entirely in and around their home, this is one of my favorite family sessions to date.

This year I branched out as a Des Moines Portrait Photographer and started focusing more heavily on portrait and editorial work in the music industry. I had the chance to tour with and/or photograph some of my favorites: Joshua James, The Wild Reeds, Gregory Alan Isakov, Okey Dokey, The Watson Twins, Bryan & Katie Torwalt and more. And 2019 has taken me back on the road to photograph some other great bands. While I’m still focused on Des Moines + Montana Weddings primarily, as well as being a Des Moines Portrait Photographer, these shoots are some of my favorites because of their creative freedom and laid-back nature.

When Des Moines Wedding Photography takes me elsewhere in the country, I love it. Especially when it takes me to Nashville, one of my favorite spots on earth. Lindsey & Blake were married just outside of town in a Historic Theatre in Lebanon, Tennessee.

I often photograph Des Moines Elopements, and getting to travel to Montana for one is special! Jocelyn and Mitch originally planned their elopement for Glacier National Park, but forest fires caused a last minute relocation. Choosing to say their vows on a cliff overlooking Flathead Lake, this intimate wedding was full of beauty and emotion. With only myself, the officiant, and their two closest friends in attendance, this day offered all the intimacy that made me fall in love with photographing Des Moines Elopements. Jocelyn & Mitch laughed, cried, and committed their lives to each other forever. Congratulations to the couple!
